The textile supply chain is long, complicated and prone to error.

So many components, methods, installations, processes and systems!

Consistent, neutral audits for a strong supply chain.

Hohenstein offers inspection modules for all production phases that help eliminate errors and ensure consistently high material and product quality or compliance with occupational safety and environmental protection laws.

We also certify facilities for market differentiation through STeP by OEKO-TEX® certification for environmentally friendly and socially responsible textile and leather production.
